Two Weeks Old

Milestones reached… Pups can see and hear now!

Happy two-weeks-old to the puppers! I’ve been trying to take photos of puppies but all of them, when they aren’t sleeping, are on the move. Happy to say all puppies are pushing themselves up and using their rear legs to support themselves. They are learning how to walk! This, as it is with any baby, is a huge milestone for them.

Other big news this week… eyes and ears are open now. Eyes start off as tiny slits as they adjust to the world around them. Every day, eyes open more and more. Ears open right around this time too which honestly… freaks me out! Puppies yip, cry, give little barks that bring me running to see what is going on? As puppies “get their voice”, they startle themselves hearing themselves (wondering where is that noise coming from?) The puppy yipping is turning his/her head all around trying to find out where that noise is coming from that s/he is making… It IS sort of funny!

Eyes opening (as well as ears)! 

I tried to “re-post” an article I’ve posted before but seem to be technically challenged doing this…sigh! Just wanted to let folks know that yes, we do “neurological stimulation” with all the puppies. This stimulation is done when puppies are very young and is supposed to help them become “better  puppies/dogs”. I don’t know how much of an effect this has on puppies but.. It is what we do with all of our puppies. You can read more about this here… Early Neurological Stimulation (click here!)

All puppies are over the 2 pounds now but one. We are spending more time with this puppy “helping him” get the best nipple and not be bullied/pushed off when eating by his siblings. He IS gaining weight but not quite 2 pounds yet. He will be soon hit that milestone but as long as he is still gaining weight every day, I’m happy!

We are still planning “puppy party” in two weeks (for those that can make it). I’ll send directions later. If August 3rd doesn’t work for anyone, let me know and we can make other arrangements. And that is MY cue to get Puppy Info Packets ready! Expect them in the next few days; early part of next week at the latest. As always, if you have any questions, let me know…

Puppies are significantly bigger and committed to their spot at the “milk bar”.

Definitely a “puppy bump” going on here!

Well actually 2 weeks and 3 days! Miss Deja is definitely carrying more than a few puppies!

Hubby was joking this morning about his new way to “exercise the dogs”. All he has to do is get up from his chair in the study and walk into the bedroom. Or the kitchen. And everyone gets up to follow him! LOL! Sitting at my desk now, I have a sea of gold surrounding me! Goldens definitely like to “hang out” with their people!

We are keeping a very close eye on Deja now (well, we keep a close eye on everyone, really). The “big day” is getting closer!
